For new pages, you really want strict, for pages that are in transition,
transitional will do.

Yes, better to clean them up and use strict.

I'm sure you know IE7 is buggy. It's better to test in a more compliant
browser, like Opera or Firefox. Usually, I do my main testing in Opera,
then if something doesn't display correctly, I debug in Firefox, and
finally, I _might_ have a look in IE.

Sometimes something works only in IE and not in Chrome.
Eg. I can not check hotmails in Chrome.
